Time: Saturday, 23rd May 8pm AEST
Genre: Contemporary Music

Remind me: Save to calendar

Sydney’s very own cult punk heroes emerge from a series of devastating events in the wake of COVID-19, banding together to make their Sydney Opera House debut in a ferocious performance of guttural guitars and anthemic vocals streamed live from the Joan Sutherland Theatre.

Emerging from the same creative community that has seen Total Control, Royal Headache and DIY haven Repressed Records create blistering highlights at Sydney Opera House, Low Life’s majestic cacophony has drawn a rabid fan base around the world while remaining distinctly Australian. Dissecting lad culture, addiction, and the brutish underbelly of our nation, the band has expanded their sound in recent years, culminating in the Australian Music Prize-nominated synth-laden masterpiece, Downer Edn.

Now returning with the once-lost single ‘Catholic Guilt’ alongside a rare remix by Total Control, one of Sydney’s most spirited groups make their return to the stage in what will be a cathartic masterclass in pummelling post-punk rhythms. Don’t miss Low Life in this special Sydney Opera House debut – a generation-defining soundtrack of the harbour city’s distinct DIY underground.
